If you use a script-driven application for your site, any data that both you and the site users generate will be stored inside a database - an accumulation of information, which is organized in cells and tables for simplier and easier reading and writing. The latter is done through special software referred to as database management system and one of the most famous ones world-wide is MySQL. A large amount of script apps are designed to work with MySQL because it is convenient to use, it functions very well on a website hosting server and it's also universal as it can function with widely used web programming languages (Java, PHP, Perl, Python) and on a number of web server OS (Linux, UNIX, Windows). There are loads of scripts that use MySQL, including popular ones such as Moodle, Joomla™ and WordPress.
MySQL 5 Databases in Shared Hosting
The in-house built Hepsia Control Panel offered with our shared hosting
will allow you to manage all your MySQL databases with ease. It requires only a few clicks to set up a new database and with only one more click you may back it up if you'd like to have a copy before you update your site, for instance. You shall be able to change the password, delete a database or permit remote access to it just as fast. For the latter option you may opt for the IP addresses which will be able to connect to the database remotely so as to make sure that unauthorized people will not be able to access your info. If you'd like to see the database content or edit any cell or table using the CP, you may use phpMyAdmin, an efficient web-based interface. Using any of our script-driven applications will also be quite simple as our script installer will create a database for the script you have selected automatically.
